Jarvis Jones doesn't expect to replace James Harrison. Landry Jones doesn't even want to talk about taking over for Ben Roethlisberger.
At the moment, the Pittsburgh Steelers rookies are just trying to adjust to life in the NFL.
Both players joined 39 other rookies or first-year players during an introductory minicamp on Friday, capping a whirlwind week that transformed them from NFL prospects to NFL players.
The Steelers chose Jarvis Jones with the 17th overall pick and hope the speedy outside linebacker can add some teeth to a pass rush in need of a boost after the team cut Harrison in March.
Pittsburgh took Landry Jones in the fourth round. The former Oklahoma quarterback says he doesn't see himself as the eventual successor to Roethlisberger.

Ever since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft, the speculation has been running rampant as to what it means for starter Ben Roethlisberger. If you look back through the history of the draft, you can clearly see why Roethlisberger shouldn't be losing any sleep.
